Did You Know?


The strongman on the boat, Jerome Zandow, is named after the character of a circus strongman who appeared in Captain American Comics # 5 (1941). See more »


In the scene where Agents Roger Dooley and Ray Krzeminski are going through the room where the man with no voice box had been staying they find 3 passports with fake names based on film directors. The British one is Alfred Lean (Alfred Hitchcock/David Lean). The American one is Orson Hawks (Orson Welles/Howard Hawks). The Italian one is Frederico Rossellini (which I assume is Frederico Fellini/Roberto Rossellini)

The series is set just after the end of the second world war and is presumably in 1946. Although Frederico Fellini was a film scriptwriter at that time he did not direct any films until 1950 so this is a factual error. See more »

On my honor, you can.

What an episode for James D'Arcy's Jarvis. For the first couple of episodes, he seemed like the aloof, comic relief-y partner of Carter but this episode expands on his character and makes him just as compelling as Atwell's Carter.

Two scenes stick out in this episode for Jarvis. The first scene is his interrogation by Agent Thompson, who I'm liking more every episode, as he showed off his interrogation skills without leaving a mark on the suspect. Jarvis, however, gradually went from calm to nervous to angry and I must give D'Arcy kudos for that performance as it naturally evolved in that scene and was very effective to show his loyalty to Stark, his wife and even to Carter. The other scene is his backstory in the sewer, where we learn his love for his wife led him to be arrested. You can see the emotion coming from him through the subtlest details in his tone of voice and facial expressions, and you can understand how he got to be in Stark's service.

Once again, the pacing and writing is spectacular as both sides of the SSR inch closer to the end while having the evidence come to them in a natural, believable way. Atwell was great again with her scenes with D'Arcy and the supporting cast with Sousa, Dooley and Thompson are also enjoyable and interesting. I particularly love Fonseca's Angie as the quirky friend that Carter has that is just a delight to anyone that meets her. The cliffhanger was good as things are starting to unfold with some agents dead, and new enemies emerging.

I had two main problems with this episode. One is that the action wasn't as great as the previous two episodes. The fight between the strongman and Carter was quickly changing from camera to camera so the choreography looked kind of worse. Also I didn't like it how they tried to make us feel bad for Krzeminski because he wasn't likable in any way. He was rude, sexist, kind of stupid and he was cheating on his wife. There wasn't any redeeming quality for him. Carter said he was good at his job when talking about him yet we had no real evidence to support that. Other than that I really liked this episode.

+ D'Arcy's performance + Carter/Jarvis Bond + Writing and Pacing + Supporting cast - Except no sadness over death of one of them - Poor action scenes

Final Score: 8.4/10
